This morning at 6.30AM we left for Schiphol Airport to say goodbye to my son Bastiaan. He will attend a training of 7 weeks in Denver. He is a flightdispatcher for the Dutch Airforce.

The planning was to fly from Amsterdam-London-Denver but the flight London-Denver was cancelled due to planetroubles. At the last moment he and his collegue could fly with Delta Airlines from Amsterdam to Minneapolis and then to Denver. His departure was in only 1 hour, so we said goodbye in a hurry and there he went....

Byebye dear Bastiaan, have a safe trip and enjoy your stay in the USA!! .... see you in 7 weeks.... !! ;-)

I have made many pictures but my camera is giving me more and more troubles and only a few were reasonable good.....;-(

I hope the time will pass quickly and he will be back with family...And if this is the first
time in the USA I hope he enjoys it...Denver is beautiful.. and the Air Force Academy
is wonderful.. Is that Mom giving her son a big hug...??? I wish him a safe and happy trip.
And, this is a wonderful composite of his waiting to leave...

Fantastic collage!
I can imagine how difficult it is to say goodbye to a child, but as Nancy said, 7 weeks may fly by. I remember when we said goodbye to our daughter when she left for the US with the plan to come back within a few months.
